Join us for a group show dedicated to all things blue: azul, cobalt, sapphire, indigo, aquamarine, turquoise, teal, cyan, and more. According to Jacob Olesen, “blue is the color of the sky and sea. Blue is considered beneficial to the mind and body. It is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven.” (color-meanings.com) As the heat intensifies, help us cool things off with your cerulean creations.

Eighth Annual Celebration of the Male Form

Cover Photo Art from Celebration of the Male Form 2018 by Jason Berlin

Eighth Annual Celebration of the Male Form at Angst Gallery: January 4-26, 2019

First Friday Art Walk Opening Reception: January 4, 5-9pm
Show: January 4-26, 2019

Art by Jane Scott

Art museums around the world are filled with images and representations of the human figure. Some of the Western world’s most famous and compelling works depict people, both clothed and unclothed. It usually goes unnoticed that the art has a disproportionate amount of female figures compared to male ones, especially nude forms.

Angst Gallery showcases the male form at the beginning of each year in order to bring more balance to the equation. We see this as an opportunity to appreciate the male body for what it is–natural, beautiful, and worthy of aesthetic examination–while also acknowledging the gender imbalance in the art world, both behind the scenes as well as in the work being displayed in museums and galleries. The show will include depictions of the male form in various media.
